« VMAX: Charting The Changes | Main | EMC DataBridge: A New Way To Think About IT Infrastructure Reporting »

May 11, 2012



What caught my eye on this blog was AppSync, what it does and the claim that "There is nothing like it in the market place". This got me thinking as to what is so special about this feature and after some research, I realised that it is nothing new. NetApp has Snapmanager, IBM has FlashCopy Manager and Hitachi has Application Protector. Perhaps the GUI offered by AppSync is more user friendly, but the functionality provided seems to be nothing new.

The best way to appreciate the differences is via a demo, showing automated discovery, protection, mooring and recovery. For now, it's unique.

In Mexico, we live in very modest environments, working 14 hours, day by day, with many hats and suits and I am very proud of it. I read tech white papers meanwhile getting back to home in the metro subway because there is no time and budget for formal training.
I configure our first EMC VNXe3100 and our first VMware server to our company infrastructure and now we are going for our first DAE.

Viva Mexico! and EMC! too...

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
